Community Resources

City of Fridley staff and elected officials are carefully monitoring ongoing events throughout the Twin Cities, including the trial of Derek Chauvin. We know this may be a challenging and uneasy time for many of our community members. As a community, it is critical to be good neighbors by offering support and compassion in times of need.

There will be many unknowns in the coming days and weeks, but we will continue to lay the groundwork to respond to any safety-related concerns that may arise. We also anticipate that there will be a variety of other needs and are committed to serving as a resource for the community. Below you will find valuable community resources that may be helpful to you, a friend, or family members.
